Time to Refocus IT on Applications
In this Uila sponsored white paper, Nick Howell and James Green talks about application-centric infrastructure management is a must for all Hybrid Cloud environments.
If you think about it, it’s always been about the application. Everything else was just a necessity – a means to an end – to run the application. Setting up, running, and maintaining the entire underlying infrastructure consumed 90% of our staff , resources, and capital expenditure each year... all to run a suite of applications.

Read this white paper to:
•    Gain insights into how Application and Infrastructure Complexity has deepened silos within organizations.
•    Come up to speed with the characteristics of other industry peer IT organizations who have a laser focus on the applications they’re delivering.
•    Arm yourself with insight on the Cloud-Induced Application-Centricity Challenges.
Security Analytics and Change Control in the Modern Data Center
In this Uila sponsored white paper, Nick Howell and James Green talks about challenges in security and change control in a modern data center environment.

Security is the No. 1 concern on many IT executives’ minds these days. With the rampant data leaks, breaches, and ransomware attacks in recent years, it’s no wonder that IT leaders walk on eggshells when it comes to changing anything regarding infrastructure, access, or security.

Infrastructure sprawl and complexity has made the challenge of security and managing changes to the environment more difficult to stay on top of than ever.

Read this white paper to get insights into the security and change control issues of the Modern Data Center.

How to Simplify Application-Centric Workload and Resource Planning
In this Uila sponsored white paper, Nick Howell and James Green talks about top challenges with Application-Centric Workload and Resource Planning and how you can solve them.
Transparency among teams, departments, and leaders is something many companies could improve on. IT teams are almost always oversubscribed, have a never-ending task list, and are constantly being asked to move mountains. While the things they’re asked to do are not impossible, they can be very daunting when not properly planned for or when the necessary resources are not available due to budget constraints.

You’ll never save your job in a failure scenario by blaming the company for not giving you enough money to do something required to facilitate successful business continuity. This makes planning and resource evaluation one of the (if not the) most important considerations to help you avoid landing yourself in hot water when the inevitable occurs

Read about the top challenges with Application-Centric Workload and Resource Planning and how you can solve them.
3 Myths About Public Cloud
The promised flexibility and availability of public cloud offerings present a way to offload simple IT functions and reduce infrastructure costs. However, the hidden per-unit costs can drawback the infrastructure benefits of the public cloud. An efficiently designed private cloud infrastructure can offer the agility of public cloud, but with greater control of cost and performance.

However, the hidden per-unit costs can drawback the infrastructure benefits of the public cloud. An efficiently designed private cloud infrastructure can offer the agility of public cloud, but with greater control of cost and performance.

Explore this paper to discover the top 3 myths of public clouds, including:

1) The acceleration of DevOps is for public cloud infrastructures
2) All types of applications perform well in public cloud
3) Public cloud is more cost-effective than private cloud
How Parallels Remote Application Server Enhances Microsoft RDS
The revolutionary potential of remote desktops is just being tapped. This article will illustrate how remote desktops can help companies work more efficiently and effectively, reducing costs and harmoniously integrating solutions such as thin clients. In addition, by delivering applications and data straight to thin clients, remote desktops simplify digital policies by centralizing data directly onto the company’s server.
In 2001, Microsoft introduced the RDP protocol, a proprietary protocol that allowed users to access an operating system’s desktop remotely. Since then, Microsoft has come a long way, developing Remote Desktop Services to facilitate remote desktop access. Formerly known as Terminal Services, RDS consists of a number of tools and services that allow businesses to build an application and virtual desktop delivery solution that their users can access remotely. However, the Microsoft RDS solution leaves a lot to be desired. This white paper looks at the pain points of Microsoft RDS solutions, and how systems administrators can use Parallels® Remote Application Server to enhance their RDS infrastructure and provide the functionality their businesses need to give their users the flexibility they need to be more productive.

Gartner predicts that over 25 percent of Global 2000 businesses have started using DevOps practices in 2016 and this will soon be the norm in many organizations. With speed, agility, continuous development, fail fast being the themes of DevOps at organizations, security ends up "bolted" in - plugged in at the end of the cycle, so as to not lose momentum. The challenge to create innovative solutions quickly leads many development teams to ignore security compliance, seeing information security as an inhibitor to DevOps agility.

Gartner depicts DevSecOps is depicted graphically as a rapid and agile iteration from development into operations with continuous monitoring and analytics at the core.

HyperGrid HyperCloud, an on premises enterprise cloud-as-a-service with a pay-as-you-go consumption model, enables DevSecOps with a governance framework that provides role-based access controls, entitlements, approval, quota and cost metering policies to enable secure and holistic management of resources, workloads, and operations across any cloud with the cost visibility needed to control spending.
